Whiteside (hip) is out for Wednesday's contest against the Knicks, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports. Whiteside will miss a sixth straight contest Wednesday as he continues to work his way back from a left hip strain. Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk should continue seeing extended run in his absence. Whiteside's next chance to take the floor will come Friday against the Thunder.
Whiteside (hip) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Nuggets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Whiteside continues to nurse a lingering hip injury and despite having nearly a week-and-a-half off to rest, he'll once again remain on the sidelines Monday. That will mark his fifth straight absence and he remains without any real timetable for his potential return. His next opportunity to take the court will be Wednesday against the Knicks. Bam Adebayo should continue to start in his place, with Kelly Olynyk logging additional minutes off the bench.
Whiteside (hip) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Lakers, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports. Whiteside will miss a fourth straight game Friday and it's somewhat discouraging that he's being ruled out a day in advance. However, the Heat don't play again until Monday against the Nuggets, which should give Whiteside another three full days for additional rest and rehabilitation. Look for Bam Adebayo to start at center in his place Friday, with Kelly Olynyk seeing added run off the bench.
Whiteside (hip) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Kings, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports. Whiteside is slated to miss his third straight game, as the Heat continue to be as cautious as possible with their big man as he works through a strained left hip flexor. The Heat are fighting for one of the final playoff spots in the East, but they aren't going to rush Whiteside back to avoid any additional aggravation, so it's unclear if he'll ultimately be cleared in time for Friday's game against the Lakers either. With Whiteside out again, look for Kelly Olynyk and Bam Adebayo to see added run in the frontcourt.
The Heat have ruled Whiteside (hip) out for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers, Tom D'Angelo of The Palm Beach Post reports. Though Whiteside and Dwyane Wade (hamstring) joined Miami for the start of their three-game road trip, both were ruled out before the Heat even conducted morning shootaround Monday, suggesting that the duo could be in store for additional absences. Whiteside, who strained his left hip flexor during shootaround Saturday and missed the Heat's victory over the Wizards later that evening, has been a disappointment for fantasy owners in large part to his poor health, as Monday will mark his 21st game on the sideline this season. With Whiteside unavailable, both Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk will benefit from spikes in playing time and production.
